I finished the Warhammer 40000 novel, The Blood Raven’s Omnibus, many months ago and even now I find it intriguing and philosophically engaging. It not only introduces the reader to an interesting plot and realistic characters but also makes them think that even the infallible Space Marines have their faults. In the book the main character Gabriel Angelos, the captain of the Space Marines, finds himself following the foretold path set by the mysterious Eldar race and battling the fierce Orks and...more

Want to give lower than one star. Use only as turpentine, it sucks the paint right off the walls.

He writes some nasty weak fan fic shit. I've read Half Life fan stuff that was better than this.

It took me a while, but this book was certainly worth reading. For me, it was very appealing to see librarians that kick ass, and this book certainly highlights the Space Marine librarian characters well, including the good and the darker sides. That the Blood Ravens Space Marines are scholars themselves is also appealing. The books feature a good amount of action and intrigue, but if you like reading more about the lore of the Space Marines, you get a good amount of description and exposition a...more
I must admit that overall one of my favorite things to see was the librarians obliterating everything. I have never been able to get much insight into these shadowy figures and their connection with the warp. The addition of the Eldar as a major force and plot focus was also a welcome surprise. They alone could have made this book readable if only to better understand their complex relationship with the Necron. Another captivating aspect of the story was the space battles. Many of the spacecraf...more
I have mixed feelings about this. There were a few books in here, and not all were good. The story was jumbled, and the whole plot line with Rhamah was painful until the end. I also had to ask a friend who knew more about the universe as a whole to fill in blanks, like why was the physic beacon important? Not answered in the book.

I did like the whole description of how Quirus Ckrius was transformed into an adeptus astartes. The story between the Eldar and Gabriel was also top notch. Overall I am...more
Interesting to read a story that fleshes out the events in the game. Yet like several other W40k trilogies, the later books are not as good as the first. And for a book, there is a lingering question of what happened to the demon? In conclusion, the third book ended rather abruptly and was an unsatisfying conclusion.

Good trash fiction - int he future there is only war. It is a nice departure from the game, I was expecting a re-hash of that story, which the first book is, but the rest are nice continuations of it without reaching Dawn of War II.

Knowledge is power. Guard it well.
I took this book to camp and was pleasntly suprised. Generally,40K books were rather mediocre, this featured an interesting, and creepy plot, with some truly amazing battles. (WARNING: very, very gory!)
Very good. I am an active player of the series of games and i usually wince at when people make things like these...but it was worth the read. I recommend it even if you are not a fan of the series.

Compendio de 3 novelas, donde relata las aventuras de los Blood Ravens y su capitan Gabriel Angelos.
No bad, captured the essence of the 40k worlds but the stories did not flow well together.
Really cool take on the game with the same name (par "omnibus").
The first two were good. I thought the third was a little weird.
Alastair Irvine
moderately enjoyable but slightly ridiculous
